Corker told reporters that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly "are those people that help separate our country from chaos".
May the blunt words by onetime Trump ally Bob Corker inspire any number of his fellow Republicans to show more backbone on a daily basis, and to start laying the foundation to challenge the president in the 2020 GOP primaries. He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said 'NO THANKS.' He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!
President Donald Trump's public feud with a top Republican on Capitol Hill has entered the name-calling phase.
Sunday evening, after the senator and president traded insults on Twitter, Corker said he feared Trump's impulsiveness on the world stage might put the planet "on the path to World War III".
GOP trouble: At the National Journal, political analyst Charlie Cook of the Cook Political Report writes that Trump went to a "darker place" in his Corker criticism, and he now thinks the GOP majority is in jeopardy not only in the Senate but in the House.

"Corker and the people of Tennessee", Sanders said. Corker had been an ally and personal friend to the president before they developed a public feud on social media.
"We're on the right path right now, believe me", Trump said during his meeting with prominent US Diplomat Henry Kissinger earlier this week.

Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon called on Corker to resign, while House Budget Chairman Diane Black (R-Tenn.) took Trump's side over her home state colleague.

Amazon finally made a waterproof Kindle
There are little tweaks to the software, as well, including more font size gradations and the ability to bold any font. My favourite feature is the option to left-justify text, which gives text a more book-like appearance.
